A TEAM of talented dancers will now go by the name of European champions after picking up first place in a prestigious dance competition.

The Junior B Team from IndepenDANCE, who are based in Evans House, won the aged 13 to 16 street cheer category in the European Cheerleading Championships earlier this month.

Double act Chelsea McArthy and Lauren Wilson also picked up first prize in their category for street cheer.

Coach Jennifer Gittins said: “There was a number of groups that entered and we are proud of them all. They all worked really hard for this.”
